[resolved] Never received password (4 posts)

    I have recently installed apache, php, mysql and phpmyadmin on windows xp. I started to install wordpress 2.1 and in step 1 after I put in my blog title and e-mail and pressed the button to continue to the next step but the next page never loaded and I never got the password. The the blog installed just fine but I never got the password so I am not able to login.

    I tried to install wordpress 2.0 and the same thing happened.

    If I try to retrieve the password via e-mail that page also will not load.
    I am not sure exactly what the problem is. Any ideas?

    Have you checked your email error logs?

    You can also check your spam folder to see if it wound up in there.

    I checked the spam folder and it is not there.
    I am pretty sure the e-mail was never sent since the page never loaded.

    The problem was that the SMTP server was not configured correctly
